Recent chair announcements within EECS

October 25, 2022

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) recently announced the following crop of chair appointments, all effective July 1, 2022. Karl Berggren has been named the

Two rounded glass compartments, one holding a computer chip, frame a view of the Charles River.

MIT engineers build a battery-free, wireless underwater camera

September 30, 2022

The device could help scientists explore unknown regions of the ocean, track pollution, or monitor the effects of climate change.

This image shows 3D-printed crystalline lattice structures with air-filled channels, known as "fluidic sensors," embedded into the structures (the indents on the middle of lattices are the outlet holes of the sensors.) These air channels let the researchers measure how much force the lattices experience when they are compressed or flattened.

New programmable materials can sense their own movements

August 12, 2022

Engineers 3D print materials with networks of sensors directly incorporated.
